Getting ready for Mass

Conversation this morning getting ready for church:
4yrold: Mom can I have M&M;s?
Mom: Yes after lunch today you may have a few. (I've no clue what she is talking about ... just trying to blow dry hair and get in car FAST so I'm not late for Mass)
2 minutes later...
4yrold: Mom Warren is eating all the M&M's!!
Mom: (saying anything to keep 4yrold calm), "I will speak to Warren, shame on him."
2 minutes later...
4yrold: Mom Warren says he is not eating M&M's and I see him doing it and I want some!
Mom: (urrrrrrrrrrr), yelling from bedroom, "WARREN NO MORE M&M'S BRUSH YOUR TEETH AND GET READY FOR MASS"
2 minutes later...
4yrold: He is still eating them mommy.
Warren: I'm not eating M&M's
Mom to 4yrold: He is not eating M&M's.
4yrold with panic in face, and tears: Yes he is I see him doing it Mommy.
Warren: What is it? I am not eating M&M's.
4yrold: YES YOU WERE.
Mom: What were you eating?
Warren: Recee Pieces.

Prayer time: Forgivness

Forgiveness is very simple: Jesus forgave everyone when he was nailed to the Cross. We too must forgive everyone & everything and pray for the redemption of the trespasser. Do all you can to mend fences with all you have forgiven. You can of course set limits on future dealings with those you have forgiven. Also, and you know this, one must be patient and allow others to ask for forgiveness. Sometimes there will be a period of discomfort but pray and ask the Holy Spirit to enter their hearts so that they can see the error of their ways and ask for forgiveness. But always forgive instantly in your heart, do not wait to be asked.
